Construction of a new state museum has put parking at a premium at the Nashville Farmer's Market leaving some vendors to fear customers will go elsewhere.

On Wednesday construction crews erected a massive fence around the north side of the Farmer's Market to make way for the new museum.

As a result the market lost about half of their parking spots creating chaos for lunch time drivers trying to find a parking spot.

"Those are people who would be bringing in revenue," one driver said. 

Some drivers circled the lot multiple times and after unsuccessfully finding a place to park, decided to go elsewhere to buy their lunch.
